Stop Motion Armature Puppet, Part 1

Building an armature puppet to animate in stop motion.  I'm building a 3-dimensional version of this paper puppet that I built last spring, based on the character The Comedian from Neil Gaiman's short story "The Queen of Knives" (seen also in my StopMo film "(grrr)").  Here are some work-in-progress photos.

With teeth!
Potential second character quick sketch.


  1. Loving all of the 3D work, but this lady character sketch really captures my imagination.
